It really depends on what wi-fi card you have, the best way to check is to go to control panel, system, device manager, check for the yellow question mark by wireless cards, then it should tell you what wireless card is in there so you can obtain drivers.
Or check your laptop manufactures website, drivers are 90% of the time available on their, have you also checkd that your router is wireless enabled and that the secuirty keys and wireless settings match up?#

cheers

You might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

Hi My Acer Netbook cant seem to start windows, i have tried going through all the safe modes, and it wont even get to that! It starts to load windows but then everhthing just goes blank!


Your netbook may have been infected by a virus and has stopped your computer from working.
If you can boot up with the Windows installation CD and do a repair then it may get your computer operating again.
If not you need to boot up with the Windows installation CD, then delete the existing partition, create a new partition and format the hard disk (not a quick format), then complete the Windows installation.
then install the Acer netbook device drivers and your programs.

Download the device drivers from the Acer WEB site. Makesure you select the model of your laptop the drivers you that require thatmatches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link toget to the Acer support: -

Wireless no longer works


1st Solution:
Check if the wi-fi card is properly installed under Device Manager. Go to Start then look for Control Panel on the right pane. Under Control Panel look for System and Maintenance and then click on Device Manager. Now under Device Manager look for Network Adapters and collapse or click the arrow next to it. Check if your wi-fi adapter is installed(10/100 or 10/1000 is your LAN adapter, wi-fi adapters usually indicates something like 802.11x(could be agn or g or b) or the word "wireless". If you don't see anything I mentioned above that means your computer is unable to detect any wi-fi adapters installed. Know if you found a wi-fi adapter but there is a yellow exclamation or question mark, all you have to do is re-install the drivers for your wi-fi adapter(you can download the drivers on the Compaq website for free.)

2nd Solution:
Check if the wi-fi is disabled or stopped, if you have a bulit in wi-fi adapter on your laptop they have a wi-fi switch on the side or near the function keys(F1, F2, F3 up to F12). Wi-fi button/switch will have a logo or marking of an antenna that has waves coming out of it and there is a LED light that will indicate if its on or off(for Comapaq laptops it's either a blue button at the front, near the function keys or at the front panel on the buttom edge.

If both fails then you may need to contact Compaq for further assistance.

Hope this will help you fixin the wi-fi problems on your laptop.
